First of all, THANK YOU to the Fabulously Artsy Tresa Black (visit her amazing blog HERE) for teaching me how to add text to my photos! Now I can take credit for my scrappy stuff... or not if it doesn't turn out :)
That being said, I cannot take credit for this card:
I searched and searched to find out who I copied this idea from 2 years ago, and I failed! So if this is your card with my paper choice, please let me know so I can give you credit!!! It's so simple with the bow, but I love how it looks like presents.
This next card really is mine:
I had a few friends and Aunts (ok, only one friend and one Aunt) with birthdays who needed a special card.
The flowers are made with one of my many flower punches I am addicted to and a coiled ribbon center. I find that glue dots work best for this technique, but you can finish the end off with a glue gun to make sure it survives the mail!
And yes, I am particularly proud of my ribbon bows on both of these! So nice when things turn out!
